Guest conductor and violinist Kolja Blacher continues the San Antonio Symphony's Mozart Festival with two Mozart symphonies that have cities as nicknames. Number 36 is called the “Linz” Symphony, as it was written in just four days during a visit to the Austrian city. Number 38 is called the “Prague,” as it received its premiere there during Mozart’s first visit to the city. Blacher performs the melodious violin concerto by Mendelssohn between the two symphonies. Attend an open rehearsal of this performance on January 13th 10am-12:30pm at the Tobin Center.
